The four fources of evolution are; natural selection, mutation, gene flow and genetic drift.

Natural Selection consist a process in which the best adapted organism reproduce the most offspring and have better survival rates. These "best adaptive" traits carry forward to their offspring at a higher frequency.

Mutation are random changes in an organisms DNA that impact traits of the organism in a good, bad or neutral way. The changes are heritable and are a result of additions, deletions or substitution of the nitrogen bases of DNA.

Genetic Drift is a random process which dictates which alleles survive from one generation to the next.

Gene Flow happens when genes are combined from one population to another.
